    I am hoping to learn better ways to integrate these practices in the remote setting.

      I, too, am hoping to learn more about the Practice and how I can apply in a remote setting. I pay attention to engagement and I'm even more aware of needing to do so when teaching remotely.

    I’m hoping to learn ways to help middle school teachers with their mathematical teaching.

    I am currently teaching Math and Science 100% remotely to 7th grade students. I have not physically met many of my students, and many are hesitant to show themselves on video or to use their voice in class. More are willing to talk to me than are willing to show themselves. This is making it more challenging for me to teach them. In the regular classroom setting, I would typically use "the look of the three headed monster" on their faces to figure out when some of my students are lost in Math. I don't have this to fall back on anymore. At least one student, isn't willing to admit when she needs help. My students are willing to share their screens on Zoom in order to get help, and they like using the whiteboard to annotate in order to learn. I am hoping to learn strategies to incorporate these practices from the book to help ensure that my students are learning in these complicated times. I would also appreciate any comments from the book group for things that are working for you in your remote teaching.

    I am not teaching math this year, officially. As an integrated curriculum teacher, I often notice that what one content-area feels is "only" for that content is really more universal. I believe that good teaching takes these practices into consideration in some way.

    I am looking to remain connected to the math community. I like this book. I am mentoring a teacher who could benefit from these practices, and I will be working with some elementary students who are remote, AND I'll be doing some math activities at a local library.

    Thinking about all of these things and putting them into practice in a lower-than-usual-stakes environment will help me to play with them a little and explore more.
